Orthopaedic Surgery Ward

Orthopaedics deals with all problems related to identifying and treatment of incorrectness in functioning and/or construction of a locomotor organ, being results of congenital or acquired malformation, injuries, and/or diseases. Diseases of a locomotor organ are most frequent causes of a chronic pain and/or restriction of physical efficiency.

Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics is a section of the clinical medicine, i.e.  a medical science, dealing with diagnosis and treatment of malformation and/or acquired disorders and deformities of locomotor organ activity, covering the whole length of a human life. Orthopaedics is closely related with, inter alia, biomechanics, chemistry, mechanics.

Orthopaedics activity refers to: congenial/development malformation arising during uterine life, after birth, during build-up, development, and finally aging of a human being; specific, nonspecific, and/or reactive inflammation of locomotor organs and their consequences; deformities and dysfunction after spastic or flaccid paralysis; consequences of locomotor organ injuries, and/or oncologic diseases of locomotor organs; consequences of hormonal and/or eating and/or system disorders on the locomotor organ system. Knowledge of orthopaedics depends on mastering of problems related to anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of locomotor organs, correct and incorrect biomechanical phenomenon occurring in a locomotor organ, problems related to compensation (offset, replacement) of disability or loss of movement efficiency. Knowledge of motion mechanisms allows for their improvement when injured, by either conservative treatment or surgical treatment. Knowledge of aetiology, symptoms and treatment of locomotor organ diseases allows for development of orthopaedics prophylaxis. Identification of orthopaedic malformations and diseases is based on clinical studies together with respective supplementary tests, as X-Ray, scan, magnetic resonance, electrodiagnosis, histological, and biochemical.

Trauma Surgery, Traumatology

[gr. traumatikos 'refers to injuries/wounds'; trauma 'wound','injury'; -loga 'pronoun', 'doctrine', 'science'],

The section of the clinical medicine, separated from orthopaedics, covering treatment of body damages effected by injuries. Traumatology relates mostly to damage of locomotor organs. Treatment of injury damages of other body organs are dealt usually by a general surgery. Traumatic damages of locomotor organs are mostly effects of mechanical force actions, however they can be an effect of thermal, chemical and/or mixed injury as well. Chemical and/or thermal injuries while treated, require usually support of specialists in plastic surgery, toxicology, etc. Traumatic damages of locomotor organs are identified according to their types, damage grade, and location, being determined as closed soft tissue contusion (bruise, muscle/tendon damage), wounds, fractures, sprains, and/or dislocations. Post-traumatic damage can be of a single or poly type. Polytrauma can be multi-site trauma or multi-organ trauma. Organism reacts to trauma with local or general lesions (important are metabolic lesions of the system). In serious cases, shock symptoms can occur.
